Solo Exhibit at The Vineyard at Florence…Florence, Texas, that is!!!

My mama would be so proud of me.  
You see, here I am, up to my elbows in alligators in the office 
as I take care of the business of my art.  
Sure, it would be ideal to spend all of my creative time
being inspired by nature, daydreaming and brainstorming, 
dancing and prancing, and painting in the studio
that is not how it works. 

No, it just doesn't work like that.  I can hear the voice of my new mentor, Alyson Stanfield, running through my thoughts, reminding me that art doesn't just make itself known to the world all on its own...no…somebody needs to present it to the world--and that somebody is me!  To keep my focus, I now meditate on the photograph (left) that I snapped years and years ago (of course, when I shot that image, it was purely a tongue-in-cheek snapshot of irony that led me to do so)…"Please Stay On The Path" it commands.  Ok…I nod.  And I get back to the business at hand.

So here I sit at the computer, mindfully and merrily working
on details for my first One-Woman Exhibit.

The exhibit will be on display
throughout the month of September 
at The Vineyard at Florence.

On Sunday, September 11, 
between the hours of 12 noon and 2 p.m.,
there will be a "meet-the-artist" event that is open to the public.  
How sweet it will be to share my art and to give out free hugs!  

Yesterday, the vineyard released their new video that showcases 
their wines, their vineyard, their villas, their event center, their tasting room, 
their restaurant, their grounds and more.  
Individually, each one of these spaces is inviting and beautiful; 
collectively, they offer visitors a divine experience.  

With joy, I share the link to the vineyard's Facebook page...

I hope you will visit their page, sit back, and enjoy the stroll through The Vineyard at Florence.
